Obviously this still puts us 2nd in the Conference.

Where does it put us seeding wise for the NCAA? Firmly off the bubble? 10 seed?

Re: If I had a time machine

If you add a made three, two assists, two rebounds, and a steal does it change the game? That’s what Brito does in the same game time as Miller. I don’t know if that changes losses into wins, but it does make us better. Are there any defensive stats out there for college guys to see the impact on t...

If I had a time machine

None because Queta didn’t play. I don’t think those losses are solely on Miller, but he certainly didn’t lead us to victory. My argument isn’t over the losses being in Miller, it’s that we would be a better team if Miller would find something he can do well and specialize in it. Newbold was hailed ...

You can to defend Miller’s play all you went to, but he is abysmal in every category.

A Shot Doctor May Cure Ags' Shooting Woes

Queta opens up a floor. He hasn't drawn a double team more than once or twice this season yet. He played all season for us last year and it affects shooting. We don't have many players who can create their own shot of the dribble, and that's what many have been asked to do you this point in the seas...

Queta also represents a roster shake up.

Up to last year's air Force game, Porter had played 154 minutes,...

Re: Will this be a Quad 1 win?

The team clearly can play, just has issues with pressure and some production besides Mays. When you're only playing 7 it can be rough. But I think they're going to be just fine. 6-10 losses on the season and they're still right with us.
